If you are struggling with the illness or passing of a loved one, or if you are interested in topics related to aging and to quality end-of-life care, then you may want to come to the Florence Community Library’s monthly discussion series presented by Hospice of the Valley.  This lecture series begins Tuesday, October 10 at 3:00 pm, with the presentation, Hospice and Palliative Care.


“Palliative” care refers to treatment that focuses on the comfort of the patient.  This type of care is generally prescribed to patients with chronic or terminal illnesses.  The focus is not to cure the disease, but to relieve symptoms to improve the quality of life for the both the patients and their families.  Hospice of the Valley has a 40 year legacy of caring for the community, allowing patients an end of life with dignity while providing necessary support to families.


This presentation will take place at the Florence Community Library on Tuesday, October 10 at 3:00 pm.  It should last approximately one hour, which will include time for questions and discussion.  Future presentations in this series will occur the second Tuesday of each month.  A schedule of dates and topics is available at the library.
